that are going on. resentment over the failure of the united states to act more forcefully in syria. the contest, the intramural contest between elements of the muslim brotherhood in egypt and the more radical elements of the islamic extremists who are trying to hijack the revolution away from the moderate muslim brotherhood, which is part of the problem. there is this residual belief that there are americans still at war with islam and those who want to burn the koran. there's still this gulf of misunderstanding between what arabs actually believe the united states feels about the role of islam in the middle east and what actually is taking place. there are so many cross currents it's almost impossible to put your finger on one or two things. the bottom line however, is that america's standing in the region has deteriorated for a variety of reasons that would take a book to quantify at this point. >> marc, there's been a huge change in tone on the part of the egyptian government i would say since president obama's call to president morsi the other day. morsi comes down and calls the protesters

that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant oil company trying to buy american oil infrastructure. think the deal is going to go through this time? it's a $15 billion oil deal. you think it's going to go through? it didn't in 2005. hount this new version? since the last time the united states said no, cnooc is famous for going into business with iran. they are in the process of developing a huge iranian natural gas field. i know it's china and china doesn't fo
could walk into a polling place and show that i'm a member of the united states congress and that would not be enough to get me in those cases the right to vote. you know, this is not just about the immediate legislation. we've always made it hard. we have had this system where for the most part, in most states, the polls closed at 7:00, you had to vote near your home on a weekday or workday. you can't just walk off from your office and say i'm going to go vote. it made it different for people that worked in factories 20 miles from home to participate. >> yeah, if you're working shift work -- i'm going to let you in on it, and we'll talk about the constitutional law of it all. when we come back, is this going to supreme court and what does it mean? stay with us. whoa. right? get. out. exactly! really?!

's a crude film. they know it has nothing to do with the united states government. it is an excuse. one intelligence person told me, if you scratch the surface, and if you gave every street vendor from street vendor to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exa

-thirds are devoted to foreign investments. maybe this is why romney's returns list the united states of america as a foreign country. you can understand the confusion. romney's blind trust investments also raised eyebrows. romney himself has called a blind trust an age-old rouge. instead, you can give a blind trust rules. but in his 2011 returns, romney didn't have many rules about chinese investments. mitt romney all along has been the candidate who says president obama did not stand up to china. romney has railed against china's trade tactics. >> my own view on the relationship with china is this. china is stealing our patents, our designs, know-how, brand names. they are hacking into our computers steeling information from not only corporate computers but government computers and manipulating their currency. for those who don't understand the impact of that, i have seen it. i have seen it. >> tough talk, right? none of these things stopped romney from allowing chinese investments into his portfolio. his returns show the romney family owning shares of a chinese oil company. romney dumped the
security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and it was embraced by everybody in the room. >> barack obama has a problem with the american dream. >> obama is stifling the american dream, primarily because it isn't his dream. >> what this administration has in mind for america isn't a renewal. it's a great leveling out. >> barack obama seems intent on enrolling more people on food stamps. >> president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> i know you're about ready to throw up, but please bear with me. it wouldn't be the republican national convention without more dishonesty about welfare and medicare. the republi
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no
're going to cut and what we're going to tax to get our treasury in order. but we've got a united states senator who backs up mitt romney and his rate, saying he is very generous. it's all a game. it's all a big game. make no mistake. romney gamed the tax code. he basically picked his own tax rate and his accountants played around with deductions so they could hit the predetermined rate near 14%. would you take it? meanwhile, romney still won't explain the specifics of his tax plan for you and me, americans. >> we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions to keep the progressivity in the code and encourage growth in jobs. >> and the devil is in the details. what are we talking about? mortgage deduction? >> the devil is in the detail, the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> let's get one thing straight. tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs. this is the top marginal tax rate from 1948 to 2010. you be the judge. it's gone down quite a bit. here's unemployment over the same period. it's very hard to argue lower taxes do anything worthwhile for jobs, but romn
. earlier this year iran threatened to close the strait of hormuz. the united states drew a clear red line, and iran backed off. now, red lines could be drawn in different parts of iran's nuclear weapons program. to be credible a red line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program. on iran's efforts to enrich uranium. now, let me explain why. basically any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. that is you light the fuse, and you set off the gunpowder. in the case of iran's plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium. the fuse is a nuclear detonator. for iran amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in big, very big industrial plants. those iranian plants are visible, and they're still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce the nuclear detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe u
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
'm no longer in congress. i could walk into a polling place and show i'm a member of the united states congress and that would be not enough to get me in those cases the right to vote. this is not just about the immediate legislation. we've always made it hard for people to vote. the system for where the most part, the polls closed at 7:00, you had to vote near your home, vote on a weekday, a work day. for a lot of people, you can't walk off from your office and say i'm going to go vote. and it made it very difficult for people who worked in factories, 20 miles from their home or whatever to participate. it's a bigger problem. >> if you are working shift work and particularly in an economy -- i will let you in on it and kenji, bring it to the table to talk me through the constitutional laws. when we come back, i want to know, this going to the supreme court? if so, what does it mean? stay with us. ♪ i'd do anything for you, dear ♪ ♪ anything, yes, i'd do anything ♪ ♪ anything for you ♪ hey. hey eddie. i brought your stuff. you don't have to do this. yes i do. i want you to keep this
was subsequently arrested his case known as plessy versus ferguson went to the united states supreme court. the court ruled in 1896 set forth a precedent that would take decades to overturn. it wasn't until 1954 brown versus board of education that we saw it overturned. you may have heard of the plessy v ferguson case, separate but equal. the majority for the court found that a statute which implies a distinction between the white and colored races has no tendency to destroy the legal quality of the two races. let's make this clearer. not only did the ruling separate people by race. it also narrowly defined them based on society's construct of what race is. you see, plessy himself, was the sort of man that you might look at and assume that he was white. so when the court was not only saying in this case that black and white are separate, they were also saying that the one drop rule is the definition of american blackness. but that was then, right? because we've moved beyond the definition and separation of race being inscribed into law. right. and race is no longer a construct placed on ot

the next president of the united states will appoint several justices to the supreme court. that often is the most lasting legacy of an entire presidency. i find it strange, given the amount of coverage that citizens united has got, i found if i'm traveling or speaking to groups reporting, among progressive folks, everyone knows citizens unite and hates them. everyone knows the court gave us citizens united, the court upheld the piece of legislation not just for this president but probably democrats of the last 30 or 40 years. yet, the court is nowhere in the election so far. jeff, you wrote about this yesterday. what is your take on why we are not hearing about the court on the campaign trail. >> because, i have asked political professionals this question repeatedly. democrats and republicans say the same thing. they say the people who really care about the supreme court are committed to their party anyway. the people who want roe preserved are going to vote for the democrats those who want it reverses are going to vote republican. the swing voters don't care even if they are pro-choi
back and end up a two-term president of the united states. i love that you were there and got the food. >>> next question. when, however, not with the longest speech, but the longest running convention in history? and how many days did it last? the longest running convention in history? all right. i'm going to give it to you. 1924's democratic national convention. it lasted 16 days. took 103 ballots, there were first fights on the floor, and a big part of the problem was there was a catholic contingency and a ku klux klan contingency. >> wasn't that first one they ever did on radio too, wasn't it? >> oh. actually i think it was. there is another one coming up. i won't take the nerd -- no, i won't take it. i have the answer if front of me. okay, i know, i know. this one will be a -- i'll give you a fill in the blanks for this one. the keynote speaker, ann richards, at the time the texas state treasurer, and she said this about george h.w. bush. she said, poor george. he can't help it. he was born with -- >> a silver spoon in his mouth. silver spoon in his mouth. >> close. you have the o
still. god bless the memories of those with lost. and god bless these united states of america. i didn't think it was anything. i had pain in my abdomen... it just wouldn't go away. i was spotting, but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. why does my mouth feel dryer than i remember it to be? there are more people taking more medication, so we see people suffering from dry mouth more so. we may see more cavities, bad breath, oral irritation. a dry mouth sufferer doesn't have to suffer. i would recommend biotene. the enzymes in biotene products help supplement enzymes that are naturally in saliva. biotene helps moisten those areas that have become dry. those that are suffering can certainly benefit
mitt romney unwittingly declared himself unqualified to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than what he paid. since that was a political problem purely for show he deliberately overpaid the irs in order to inflate his tax rate on purpose. he explained that's why he was doing it. on the maddow blog today it was said mr. romney was in the extraordinary position of select ing his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pays. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. that's what the average millionaire in america ends up paying in taxes after all
of the united states is an awesome figure merely to share the platform with him on equal terms is the gain in stature, good performance will be gauged even better. why would any president agree to participate in an event that ultimately -- the -- because it's become now a demand, president obama suddenly bailed on debates. then, you know, he would be seeming like a poor sport. and also these debates are agreed upon long before the fall season, they're everything from the podium to the lighting, everything is worked out between the parties. >> do you think the presidential debate has ever changed the course of an election? >> i definitely do, i think we just talked about 1960, i think it changed it. i think in 1976, in 1980, i think also one could argue in 2000, it would al gore's kind of a robotic performance against george w. bush that cost him a lot. - >> rolling his eyes and -- >> the lock box that nobody understood what he was talking about. and the way -- even the way his makeup looked. one of the problems of these debates anymore, it's not just substance, people are looking at eye ro
. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead, no mus, no fuss. who is going to argue with that? but it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving children and spouse's. the same bill is holding up the wounded in the war. governor romney, i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off but here's an easy one, should someone from your own party lift that hold from those people, should the republican senator holding this up keep that hold in place or drop it. you're the leader of that party. do you have anything to say on this? 24 hours later it turns out governor romney does not have anything to say on this. but since that angry little report on this show last night, today whoever the republican senator was who was holding up that payment to veterans and their family, today

? >> well, that helps mitt romney to be on the same stage with the president of the united states. there's no doubt. it always helps the challenger with the incumbent. the problem, though, is i think what susan pointed out and dana pointed out is that we really don't know who mitt romney is. so the question is which mitt romney will appear on the debate stage? and that will determine whether people will believe whatever candidate shows up at that time. >> all right. dana, real fast, though, president obama has a lot on his agenda. starting tomorrow, he's going to be here in new york city. and what's on the schedule is this high-stakes speech before the u.n. nbc's first read is calling it the president's do-no-harm week. and the reason they're saying that is because he doesn't really have on one-on-ones with any other world leaders. he's got to sit down with the ladies of "the view." sure, i mean, and they're going to hit him with some hard questions. but, you know, it's not going to be the same thing as meeting with world leaders. the romney campaign is going after the president on this
? that makes sense. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead, no muss, no fuss. who is going to argue with that? but it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving spouse's and children's payment for soldiers killed in the war. the same hold is also affecting the disability payments to soldiers who are wounded in the war. some republican senator is blocking this. we don't know who. governor romney, here's a place to start. you are now the leader of the republican party. i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off when it comes to nation 58 security. but here's an easy one, should that senator from your own party lift that hold on the cost of living adjustment to the payments to those people who we sort of owe it to? should a republican senator who is holding this up

president of the united states. it was through a write-in vote. >>> eddie vedder played at a fund-raiser for president obama yesterday. he complained to the crowd about mitt romney's 47% remarks saying, quote, it's very upsetting to hear a presidential candidate be so easily dismissive of such a ginormous amount of the population. >>> dave matthews told cnn he wishes there were a third party competing in the electric. since there isn't he says, quote, i will wholeheartedly support obama even if i'm slightly heartbreaken about. >>> unscientific poll is based on how many halloween masks each of the candidates have sold. well, so far republican mitt romney and his masks are trailing with 31% of the sales. president obama's mask has a big lead with 69% of the sales. this campaign predictor has been correct each of the last four elections. >>> and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> last flight on "the ed show" tammy baldwin talked about her closing a wide gap in her race and told ed that she feels all the ads that karl rove's super pac have run against her have backfir
the president of the united states or vice president biden. but they have the benefit of having some of the greatest speakers, arguably, in the history of politics, bill clinton, president obama, you could add michele obama to that list now. >> oh, my gosh. the reaction from that speech has been -- i mean i have heard from people from all walks of life who were completely moved by that speech and brought to tears. i don't even think they expected it to be that good. she was excellent. >> yeah. >> it was her execution that just brought it home. >> her speech was tough. she delivered it well. >> hours before last night's big speeches there was an awkward and unexpected moment on the convention floor, amid criticism from mitt romney, and other top republicans, democrats held a last-minute vote to reinsert the word "god" into the party platform and to declare jerusalem the capital of israel. >> the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed say no. >> in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those
cover more liberal areas. berkeley and oakland and all that, those are not racist parts of the united states. people live there because they like diversity. this republican ad campaign about welfare and giving up the work requirement to me is all of the old language and lingo? >> these are code words. when you talk about the food stamp president and welfare and the way they talk about welfare. i was on public assistance. we have many young women who need that bridge over troubled waters until they can find a good paying job to take care of their families. there's so many people because of the economy and because of the previous administration's economic policies who need assistance yet. they need food stamps. but the way the republicans are preventing this, of course it's cold. and of course they're trying to play into the worst fears of the american people. it's not going to work. people know better than that. i think people will rise to the occasion. they're going to get out and vote for president obama. they're not going to listen to the right wing rhetoric of this. >> i remember t
the president of the united states in the eye and say, you're wrong, and then stick to it and win the arguments? >> yeah. >> a great line. prime minister thatcher used to say first you win the argument then you win the vote. i think republicans forget that. >> right. >> interesting. >> yes we do. >> speaker gingrich, mr. professor, thank you very much. >> we're looking forward to seeing calista on tuesday. dee dee myers stay with us. coming up more poll numbers from swing states. david gregory and chuck todd will be here to break them down and also eugene robinson joins the conversation. i don't want healthy skin for a day. i want healthy skin for life.

it on tape for the first time a political party in the united states, major political party comes out with guy marriage. this is an unequivocal call, a call for comprehensive immigration reform. again, driving up support among those groups. that's the news out of here today. the other thing i would just mention, i was going to hold up some buns for you guys, that i picked up down here. msnbc is putting pictures of all of the much buttons and people around here, the crowd here, can pick out their favorite one. i was going to bring krystal and toure and s.e. i stopped by the counter and they said, those are all sold out. we have a about a dozen of the kornacki ones left. >> right. >> that not true. >> i know that's not true. >> i shutter to think what they are doing with my buttons down there. let's bring in former -- >> he are pushing your buttons. >> let's bring in ed rendell, when al gore was running and he was named america's governor. governor, how is the dnc this year? we remember the pageant try of 2008. how does the dnc this year celebrate the president, celebrate the party, cel
to disappoint and mitt romney really next to the president of the united states looks like someone with better ideas is going to fix this, then in the final weeks he could make the sale and win. >> what are those better ideas? you cannot say you have them and not present them, and i think that's what i hear from a lot of people as well who are those undecideds that i still wonder how undecided they are. nefrlgs, michael, i love you because you talk to people all day long on your radio show. what's the most common thing you hear right now, especially related to this specific jobs report after the convention? >> let me say, people seemed underwhelmed by the president's speech last night, tamron. one fellow from boston said it reminds him of the beatles. they had so many hits it reached a point where it was hard to have an extraordinary song because they already had a great catalog. by that he meant that the president has so often knocked it out of the park that the bar was very high for him, and it made it very difficult for him to have an extraordinary night last night. by all accounts it was a
, but they did it because they care about their neighbors and their friends. that's what we do here in the united states of america. that's what happens in louisiana. when disasters like this happen, we set aside whatever petty disagreements we may have. we're just americans looking out for one another. i couldn't be prouder of -- >> that's president obama in louisiana touring the damage from hurricane isaac. we'll be back from charlotte in a minute with much more on the eve of the democratic convention. this is "hardball," the place for politics. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. nothing complicated about a pair of 10 inch hose clamp pliers. you know what's complicated? shipping. shipping's complicated. not
the president of the united states in that way. let's even take the idea that we are somehow less safe in the world, this kind of discourse that was coming up from condi rice and john mccain. that felt to me the sort of thing that would be policed out of a democratic convention. you're not allowed to show up and say oh, you know, we're much more vulnerable now. we're much less safe than we once were. >> the eastwood presentation, it spoke to the soft birtherism that's been around all week. that barack obama is not one of ours. he just doesn't get it. and the party took on this role as the carrier of the american dream, the carrier of american exceptionalism as though the rest of us are not. and then to say actually he doesn't get it, and implication presuming lots of democrats don't get it. >> i think we're connecting a lot of dots that shouldn't necessarily be connected. >> okay. >> i think clint eastwood very clearly has a history if you look at this man of being one that is civil to people of all different backgrounds. and you know, i just thought that this was an eccentric speech.
class voters about crime in the united states or about the maybe some of the parts much the civil rights movement they didn't like. and then when with ronald reagan would talk about welfare queen, same thing, a coded racial message. so what are the messages this time? well, the most important one is in the ads that the romney campaign is doing on welfare. these ads are inaccurate but making it sound as if president obama wants to, quote, send them a check, just send them a check. welfare recipients. more than half of all of their ad budget is dwoeevoted to thes ads. now, they toned that down at the convention because that so obviously is a racial subtext. they toned that down, but they do have a couple of other things that still will do conjure kind of the same deal, both paul ryan and mitt romney said in their speeches that money was going to be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. >> i heard that. >> what that's code for is, hey, white senior citizen voter, your money is going to be taken and given to possibly black minority, uninsured, poor people. that plays on their fears that
don't think anybody in the state of nevada or the united states wants to continue overpayments to insurance companies but by restricting and ending those overpayments we extended the life of medicare by nine years. >> the interesting thing about your opponent is he voted for the early version of the ryan plan which is the more aggressive which would have turned all of medicare for those under 55 into the voucher program. he voted for the second version which was the more moderate version. he has a strange record on this. >> well, look. there's a lot to do with political expediency. he voted twice, not once to turn it over. that's not going to work in this state. >> the reason i played that clip is because dean heller realized the second time he ended up passing the ryan budget he realized he had to run for re-election. he didn't vote for the ryan budget. even though it moved to the left. it offers seniors a choice. to me, if you're going to say what happened a month ago that switched things, i think it's ryan. i think ryan on the ticket has made this -- and for some reason stra
is president or wants to be president of the united states ought to keep that in mind. >> i think he ran against a mandate because that was a politically wise thing for him to do and it helped separate him from his two opponents and he implemented it because it was what you do policy-wise. if you took this approach, you had to have the mandate. i think it makes sense for romney to sound as hawkish as possible in order to please elements in the republican base but he tapped robert zellic to be in charge of his transition. he's considered within the realist/dovish position. we don't know. i think it would be a very romney thing to do to use rhetoric as a substitute for actually costly policy actions. >> josh is pro flip-flop. you may change your mind. >> if your position is bad, then, yes. >> that's mccain's line. changed my mind. i would also note since we ran from that list, the american government under george w. bush and very president obama was colluding. i don't want to give too much credit to the president or the american power in bringing down him when he was a key ally that we've
of the united states who believes in infrastructure as one of the growth engines for this country. we should also be very clear for every dollar spent, it is a multiplier of 1.6 times on gdp. the fastest multiplier for any business. he put out a bill that didn't get past. how could you not pass intrasfrkture? i hosted a summit that had the chamber of commerce on one side and the unions on the other side both begging. >> this is the middle and regulation in texas both begging for it. the idea that we have a polar e polarizing environment today. >> pole riarize in washington. >> this is one of the great tragedies. there is common ground between business and between labor and it has to do with investing in human infrastructure and there is a desire on the part of republicans even stuff that is good for small businesses and even stuff that is good for infrastructure, the republicans won't pass their own bills because they would rather see the economic pain build up than have the country move forward and have obama get credit for it. i think that has to be raised as a real question. think about
and respectfully nowadays in education across this world really and across the united states. [ applause ] and the reality is -- the reality is it's time to let teachers teach again. it's time to let them do what they were trained to do rather than let administrators tell them what to do who haven't been in teaching ever in their lives. time to let politicians take a step back, administrators take a step back, and let teachers have more free will in the classroom and teach the students because we're human beings. we're not products. and that's really important to us, not only as students but to the country for advancement and to develop in the world. >> i'm taking you home with me. [ applause ] luke. >> i'm here with helen. wants to talk about after-school programs. >> well, i just wanted to bring out that colleges like well-rounded kids, students, and i think after-school programs will help us be that. so i'm protesting more after huf school programs for -- they could help us stay out of trouble and learn more than what regular school teaches us. >> more funding for after-school program
